PropertyOfZack.com wrote a lengthy review of the album. A snippet can be seen below.
Regardless of its conception, the record astonishes in its variety of tone. The middle portion of the album maintains those 80’s British invasion vocal tendencies, while the synthetic essence of each track varies in its effect. “Deconstructing Gods” is contemplative in structure and mesmerizing in its repetition. “Everybody’s Friends” is quintessentially clubby but, surprisingly, low-lying in melody. “Let’s Be Honest,” one of Blaqk Audio’s finest tracks, is Information Society-esque in its marchiness, and followed by ballads that change keys. By the end of it all, the listener finds himself in “Bliss” with where darkened reverberating glockenspiels meet 4-2 rhythms.
The latter portion of the record gets swingy and channels the favorites of power-pop 80’s. Madonna-on-speed is reincarnated with Havok’s melodic arcs and Puget’s synthetic timbres. And nothing says “young hearts be free tonight” like Havok’s “who cares who’s watching?” // “smile tonight in the sacred light” (“Bon Voyeurs” and “The Witness).
